Discover centuries of history and modern art while on the passport campaign!

Isabel Hicks | Dec 2018

While we live in a ‘new city,’ there are many heritage sites with centuries of history just waiting to be explored in Milton Keynes!

The Westbury Arts Centre, one of the 17 cultural venues and libraries participating in Pedalling Culture’s Cultural Passport campaign, was a 14th Century moated manor which is today a thriving art centre.

Many local artist’s studios inhabit the Westbury Arts Centre, and their doors are regularly swung open to the public throughout the year. Until Friday 7th December resident artist Yvonne Elliott’s ‘Translate’ exhibition will be on display.

So while you muse over the beautiful handmade textiles and frames, the children can discover the Arts Centre, and explore the ancient features which still stand today, including an old oak door which is said to have come from an Armada ship!  Plus they can get another stamp in their passport!

To complete the Cultural Passport challenge, participants simply need to visit and explore FOUR of these venues,* between 1st December and Sunday 6th January 2019, receiving a stamp in their passports at each site.

All completed passports will be entered into a prize draw to win some fantastic prizes, including a £100 intu Gift Card and Robin Hood Pantomime tickets.
